What's coming?

I think today was the 100th successful Falcon 9 rocket launch

I was told that there is a full browser with open internet access on screen in the Tesla and that TAG has no way to disable or filter it, so if I my teenager drives the Tesla he can simply park and enjoy unrestricted access to p**n onscreen. Thatís a real dealbreaker for me. Thereís a lot I would do for convenience and an enhanced experienced but not at my kids expense. (Not that Iím comfortable trusting myself with unfiltered internet, and that itself would probably be a dealbreaker, but giving my kid the car plus unfiltered is kind of like give him money and putting him in front of a בית זנות.)

Is this info accurate? Has anyone fount a workaround to address this? Thanks.

You don't have to get premium connectivity, without it the browser doesn't work unless you are connected to wifi

the browser is terribly slow and I don't think you can watch videos on it, I tried when I first got the car before they added youtube as a separate app I haven't tried recently though

From @Dan 's write-ups, it seems like they are pretty open and receptive to good ideas, so suggest it to them

As per Teslaís website it looks like Teslaís ordered after 2018 actually come with a 1 year free trial of premium cellular connectivity and Teslaís ordered before them come with free cellular connectivity for life. I wonder if you can decline the free lifetime/trial premium and go WiFi only. Wonít stop you kid from driving out to the nearest free hotspot but better than cellular.

I just checked if it's in valet mode the browser's inaccessible ( you can also put a speed and acceleration limit on)

How long have you had the car?
Tesla used to have a 7 day return policy no questions asked but I think they may have gotten rid of it

Can I ask why you want to get rid of it?

I have the car for 2 years already. I took out a lease for a Lexus. It wasn't so comfortable for me. Any ideas what to do with it?

Thanks

The e-booklet below could have gone in Interesting Articles or Stocks thread, but I decided to put it here, as it has quite a bit of insight and information way beyond the stock valuation and is a good read IMHO.

One point that stood out to me was towards the end where he discusses the valuation:



Compare that to:


I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
